Buggy Humor and War Stories

Postby BuggyBob » Wed Apr 28, 2010 7:53 am

There seems to be an ending stream of witty comments and stories about Buggy on this website. I was thinking that a separate thread might be appropriate. Good or bad idea?

Example of recent failure of a new Buggy Rule promoted by the newly created Fire Safety Administration (FSA) of CMU, requiring random tests of people in the Buggy Preparation Area, to see if they have flammable gases on their person.

Here's a hard-to-believe 'Buggy War Story' that supposedly occurred - before even I arrived at CMU (back when dinosaurs ruled). It goes like this:

Buggies back then had male drivers. The buggies often weighed as much as the driver - maybe the pushing load was 200# total? (close to half of that now, right?).

The story goes..........

One time during Free Roll practices on Sunday morning, a buggy was pushed up Hill 1 with no driver in it (the whole damn thing was so heavy that the pusher could not tell - allegedly a drunk ATO), and the exchange was done to Hill 2, and then the unguided buggy went off on its own downhill and then got really f'd up in an impressive crash near The Pond area. No wonder.
Upon inspection, the buggy team realized it was 'unmanned' (these day ' unwomenned?).

I did not witness this. It sounds like an Urban Legend, but it's a classic BuggyDom story, of my era.

BREAKING NEWS...
(LATE Breaking - April 17, 2010)

Cable TV Oracle 'DNN' Reports a disturbance in Pittsburgh, PA......

"Our bureau office in dahtahn Pittsburgh reported a huge flash to the east.
Our reporter there brought this to our attention, briefly, and her last words were "What the f...?".

Apparently a WMD, in the low kiloton range, was detonated from within a truck at the starting line at some unique annual Soap Box Derby-type race at some university in the Oakland area (see map, below - we have no video; it melted).

In checking the race rules, WMD's are not specifically prohibited on the race course, but 'flammable liquids', that are too 'near', are.

The person in charge of safety on the race course, was not available for comment, as he was vaporized."

END

NOT FUNNY?

One of the standard ways to screw your competitors (back in the days when people heated the wheels in their truck - using electricity) was thus:
Follow the electric cord from the competitors truck its 120VAC socket in Margaret Morrison. About 5 minutes before their heat - pull the plug.
Now, they are in the dark in their windowless truck, and the heaters go off. They're f'd.
At SAE, we got wind of this ploy, and stationed a big dude at our socket to avoid this.
Honda generator rentals went up.
